Difference Fostered (DF) was a collaborative, eleven-hour performance with Dominic Thorpe, developed in response to the challenges of commemorative re-engagement with traumatic cultural memory.

The project aimed to develop performance strategies for re-positioning historic memory in contemporary contexts and address ideas of commemoration through ephemeral actions. DF also extended Johnston’s long-term research into empathetic encounter as a transformative form of political testimony.
